Is this statement true, and does this mean that the Law of Attraction is not working for the next 98% of the people that are struggling, and are trying to make ends meet?

What does the 98% of the people that are struggling need to do different to manifest more wealth in their life?

Let's examine some of the implicit assumptions in your question:

Only independently-wealthy people are not struggling

  • I am not independently wealthy. But I am not struggling financially either. I make enough to pay all of my bills, and there is some left over at the end of the month.

  • Independently wealthy people struggle also, even with money, but they also struggle with other things. Having enough money so that you don't have to work doesn't guarantee an easy life.

The Law of Attraction is not working for everyone else.

  • Some people don't want to be independently wealthy. You may dispute this, but mostly it's true. Of those that don't want to be independently wealthy:

    • Some believe that money doesn't grow on trees. Translation: Money is scarce or hard to come by, and they don't want to have to work that hard for it.

    • Others believe that you have to be clever or have an angle to make lots of money. They generally don't hold onto the money they do make, because they don't feel they deserve it in the first place, or they run afoul of the law. Others don't bother to try because they believe they have to be dishonest to make lots of money, and they don't want to.

  • Some people believe that there are more important things in life than money, and they focus on manifesting those things instead.

  • Other people manifest the things they want in life, without using money. Money is not the only way to manifest.

You've got some good points there, Vesuvius.

I think Vesuvius has covered most of what I was going to say. I personally want the things that money can buy, not the actual wealth itself.

I think this is where most people get it wrong. Their focus should not be on acquiring the wealth but instead on what they actually want, whether that is food, a house or a car.

Yes, right. I forgot to mention that part.

We could also work towards manifesting a different political system as the system we live within is not ordained by god and is created by us.

Even the god most people 'know' and worship, is a manmade god.

I wouldn't worry about having to manifest a new political system.

There is apparently quite a lot of people already focusing on that topic, and I don't think anything could stop it now. =P

Yes be the change you want to see in the world but also take actions to achieve it. Snow- those in power like nothing more than apathy.

(14 Jan '12, 04:52) Alan Crabbe

Indeed, Alan. But those not in power are already all over this topic. Note all of the revolutions happening all over the world? Even the most insensitive of "spiritual" individuals have felt a "wind" coming for some time now. There is a breeze, a "wind of change", and that was what I was referring to..

Whether you personally want it or not, look at the world around you. Change is coming. ^_^y

Lets hope so snow. One hope is that the internet is building alternative ideas and is bypassing the usual tools of propaganda.
